Actor R Madhavan and Ritika Singh's Bollywood movie "Saala Khadoos", which has been simultaneously made in Tamil as "Irudhi Suttru", has received positive reviews from audiences.
"Saala Khadoos" is a sports drama film written and directed by Sudha Kongara Prasad. Besides acting, R Madhavan has also jointly produced the movie with Rajkumar Hirani. Santhosh Narayanan has composed the music for the movie, while Sivakumar Vijayan handled the cinematography.
Adi Tomar (R Madhavan) had a dream to win a boxing gold for India, but he is banished from the national institute on charges of sexual harassment. When he is shattered, his friends come to his rescue and help him become a boxing coach. Adi finds a 17-year-old poor girl (Ritika Singh), who is passionate about boxing. The rest of the movie traces their friendship and a journey towards an impossible dream.
The audiences say Sudha Kongara Prasad has written an amazing story and engrossing screenplay for "Saala Khadoos". The movie is loaded with punch dialogues and the favourite dialogue of many is: "Kaun kehta hai India me talent nahi hai, sports me se politics hata ke dekho, gali gali me champions milenge."
As a boxing coach, actor R Madhavan has delivered brilliant performance and his intensity of emotions is the main highlight of "Saala Khadoos". Boxer Ritika Singh, who is making her acting debut with this movie, has done her best for her role. Mumtaz Sorcar, Nassar, Zakir Hussain and other supporting artistes' performances are also big assets of the film, say the viewers.
"Saala Khadoos" has rich production values and the music and picturisation are the big attractions in the technical front. Most of the film goers are impressed with the film and they took to their Twitter handles to share their verdict on the flick. Here is the live update of "Saala Khadoos" movie review by audience.

#SaalaKhadoos: In short, this is a movie that will last. Everything comes together in this film effortlessly. A sure winner for all. 4/5 #SaalaKhadoos: Madhavan delivers an amazing performance while Ritika Singh is a wonder girl who overshadows even Madhavan, sometimes. #SaalaKhadoos There was remorse, guilt and willingness to do anything all through this film. An incredible gem of a movie. A must see.
